Since December 1975, the Spina Bifida Association of Central Florida was has been serving adults and children living with Spina Bifida and has been recognized as a I.R.S. 501(c)3 nonprofit organization since January 1979. Our organization comprises of families affected by Spina Bifida, medical professionals who have dedicated their lives to treating and preventing this birth defect, and community volunteers who support our mission to promote the prevention of Spina Bifida and enhance the lives of all affected.
The WALK-N-ROLL® for Spina Bifida is a family-friendly walk event being held to raise awareness about Spina Bifida and celebrate the accomplishments of the over 177,000 Americans living with it. All proceeds benefit the Spina Bifida Association of Central Florida's programs and services for individuals living with Spina Bifida.
The name “WALK-N-ROLL” was selected because it embodies a sense of inclusiveness and invokes the sense of empowerment which the Spina Bifida Community embraces in all that it does. A belief in a better tomorrow is our vision and the steps taken in this walk represent steps on a path to realizing that dream.
Participants can choose between a one-half mile or one mile path and we invite you to walk around these paths however many times you would like to do so. Children can come in their Halloween costumes and visit the exhibitors to get some treats. There will be activities and music, too.
The Tampa Walk-N-Roll will be held at Water Works Park, located at 1710 N Highland Ave, Tampa, FL 33602.
